    Hey there Lay-Team,

    I currently am struggling a bit with the available options for the Project Thumbnail Mouseover.
    My whole page works with an off-black background (image!) and a lot of the images have the same background color to make them seem to be free floating. The problem with the current options is, that they all change the background color of my image when hovered:

    • Change Brightness: makes the whole thumbnail darker which in my case reveals a border I don’t want to be shown.
    • Show Background Color: shows a background color, which (depending on the browser) also reveals a border for a short time depending on the color settings of the used monitor.

    I'd love to have a third option like:

    • Change Opacity: which simply controls and animates the opacity for the Project Thumbnails.

    Or a way to set the Background Color in Show Background Color to transparent. I hope that makes sense!

    Cheers & Thank you!

    Prepare your project thumbnails either as transparent PNGs in a square sized document. Or use a background coloured like your page-background.

    Pretty much the same procedure you would use to prepare non-square Instagram posts.

    Hey there,

    just been wondering what the benefits of .woff2 are?
    I know that it’s a more compressed and compact format than the ol’ woff. Are there any other benefits?

    Any technical details (browser support etc.) would be great!

    Dunno if I get this right,… but project arrows are for navigating between projects (as the name implies). It doens’t make much sense to use these for navigation between pages.
    But you could of course do that with some custom code. I would consider this off-topic and should be discussed in another thread.

    Cheers!

    Ok!

    So now I get what you want to achieve. The answer might unfortunatelly be:

    «No, without any code-magic you won’t be able to realize it that smooth by now»

    You will always have a page reload with (the above mentioned options) since the content gets rendered on different pages. But you could have a look into isotope. As far as I understand this is the way you want it to behave.
    I’m not sure if the code-examples there will work with lay since I don’t know which derivate of masonry is currently implemented in lay. But filters are not implemented into lay (yet).

    I'm sure that @arminunruh is able to get you on the right track here.

    @mariusjopen Text on top of a carousel would be a great feature!

    But how about going one step further and also allow the use of carousels as backgrounds?

    First thing you need to do is create a page for each category in the categories section of lay and a page that shows all categories.

    Then afaik there are two options to go about this:

    1. A text-element that resembles the menu you want to use with every category name linked to the respective category.
      Then follow the steps that Marius described above and add that text element to all the categories and the all page. You might have to add some text decoration via CSS to fake active states.
      Good thing about this is you can just not add that element to pages / projects you want it to be hidden.

    2. Create a menu with all the categories + the all page and position it as desired.
      You might have to hide that menu (via CSS) in locations you don’t want it to be shown, but (contrary to option 1) the active and hover states are easily styleable through the customizer.

    As soon as you added a thumbnail grid to a (category-) page it will get updated when you add a project associated with that category. I personally wouldn’t use the element grid for that.

    Hope that helps!

    What exactly isn’t working for you?
    Is it not translating into the frontend as expected?
    if it’s the latter, do you have a link to inspected the faulty behaviour?
    Or are you experiencing problems in the backend?
    Have you tried if it works in a different more advanced browser like chrome?

    A video could be a solution for you. Not perfect in terms of maintainability but a similar kind of splashpage recently was discussed in this topic.

    I would make a character-style in the Text Formats with your desired look and choose it in the customizer afterwards. You could also target the project titles with a custom css and add font-weight: bold; or font-weight: 700;

    Hope that helps.

    Cheers!
